Veteran Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko has advised fellow colleagues in the movie industry to avoid fetish movie productions and embrace more scientific related creations that will develop the nation.

“...we should jettison any production that tends to create disaffection. We should jettison production that are not positively tailored. We should tailor our production more on scientific issues that can help the populace and the world. We should stop all these ideas about fetish things."

The actor who was speaking in an interview with Journalist Adeoye Adewunmi urged Nigerians not to be complacent and obey the Coronavirus safety protocols. Adding that the virus is real.

"I pray that coronavirus will not consume us in this country and I pray finally that our people continue to understand the fact that COVID-19 is real and people should continue to adhere to all the conditions and regulations given to us by the authority."

"I have met COVID-19 patients. I have met people that are really involved and I know that the people that I met will not be bought over by anybody. I know what I am talking about. So, they gained absolutely nothing from me telling lies,” he said.

On the subject of his year plan, Jide Kosoko revealed that he is looking forward to producing his own films.

"What I want to do differently this year is that it has been a long time that I produced my own films and as you know that one is getting old gradually, it is my wish to start keeping my content. So, this year, I must produce some films even if it is not going to be more than two."
